The path of justice

God has given us the right to choose. He shows us the path of life and death. The path of life is the path of justice, and the path of death is the path of injustice, therefore, we are the ones who decide which path to take!

Usually, people like to point the finger and blame others when things go wrong. However, the same cannot be said when it is something good, because when it’s good, they want all the credit for themselves.

We know that the spirit of God and the spirit of the devil are in this world. God does not force anyone to walk with Him but, when a person decides to walk with Him, they are charged by Him to walk in righteousness. Since He is pure and holy, He cannot walk with an unrighteous person.

However, He wants to save the unrighteous who have suffered the consequences of the spirit of injustice: poverty, disease, betrayals, lies, etc. For this reason, God gives the person a tool, which is supernatural faith—a sacrificial faith—so that they can come before Him, Who is holy and pure.

God charges the person to be holy (righteous) like He is holy, Because it is written, ‘Be holy, for I am holy.’” (1 Peter 1:16), we can also charge God to do His justice.

It is impossible to live in an unrighteous world and not be a victim of injustice. This is why God allows His righteous to be wronged, so that they can express their faith and charge Him for His justice. God gives us the right to demand His justice because He charges us to walk in His holiness!

When God appeared to Abraham, He presented Himself as the Almighty God and said, “…Walk before Me and be blameless.” (Genesis 17:1)

Wouldn’t this be God charging Abraham to walk in righteousness? This is why when Abraham knew that Sodom and Gomorrah would be destroyed, he came before the presence of God, and charged Him for His righteousness by saying, “Would You also destroy the righteous with the wicked? (…) Far be it from You. (…) Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?” (Genesis 18:23-25)

God knew that there were righteous people in Sodom, but He allowed this to happen so that one of His righteous would cry out for justice, and this person was Abraham!

    We choose the path that we will walk in, either the right or the wrong path and God has given to us that choice. When we are in the path that is wrong we show to God that he is not ours. Many don't follow his words and do things in the way that they want to. And because of this they can't go before God him self to demand anything from him because they are not right before him. God has no place in the life's of people that are living in this way as they have not given or made room for God. This was thing I learnt within my journey of changing. Many times I would do things in the way that I wanted and try to demand from God. And when I didn't see God's answer I wasn't happy. I would pray and ask God why my life is the way it is, I would just complain but nothing will change. choose the path that we will walk in, either the right or the wrong path and God has given to us that choice.

I would pray and ask God why my life is the way it is, I would just complain but nothing will change. However when I chose to follow God and to do things in his ways not my own that's when I was able to demand from him. I was righteous before Him and blameless which allowed me to cry out for justice in my life. Because I know and live a life of righteousness before God when problems come my way I don't sit back and accept them. No. Because in the same way God demands from me to walk in righteousness and be without blame then in the same way we have the right to demand from God. But this is not just something we do for a short time but for ever, each day of our life we need to walk in the path of righteousness and blameless before God. So that when we demand from God He will answer in the same way Abraham demanded. And not only that many times God knows that we are right with him but he wants us to demand from him and that's when we see the problems accrue in our life's. It's not to make us weak but it's to make us cry out for justice.

    Bishop! It's true that when someone decides to walk in the paths of justice, he is to obey whatever God tells him to do so he too is able to demand for his favour before God.That's why I most of the guys are still lost in the world because they find it difficult to follow the paths of justice.

    God gave us free will so he let us choose our own path whether good or bad he respects our choice. it is up to us to decide where we choose to spend our eternity.
